The top ten arguments put forward by the new atheists are teased out and torn down. The new atheists are putting out new books and articles, bus adverts and TV programmes like there's no tomorrow. They've gained a large slice of the public eye's pie, but do their arguments really hold water?
^^Using the analogy put forward by the esteemed philosopher Anthony Flew, Michael Poole examines the new atheists' use of the 'ten leaky buckets' tactic of argumentation - presenting readers with a sum of arguments that are each individually defective, as though the cumulative effect should be persuasive. This closer look at the facts reveals that the buckets are, indeed, leaky.


^^Michael Poole is Visiting Research Fellow in Science and Religion at King's College, London. He has also written The User's Guide to Science and Belief.

The new atheists are putting out new books and articles, bus ads, and TV programs like there's no tomorrow. They've gained a large amount of public attention and media exposure - but do their arguments really hold water? Using the analogy put forward by the esteemed philosopher Anthony Flew, Michael Poole examines the new atheists' use of the "ten leaky buckets" tactic of argumentation - presenting readers with a sum of arguments that are each individually defective, as though the cumulative effect should be persuasive. This closer look at the facts reveals that the buckets are, indeed, leaky. Addresses the atheist arguments that: Religion is evil because evil deeds have been committed by believers, Faith is irrational and demands positive suspension of critical faculties, and, Religion's main function has been to explain the mysterious forces of nature, so now that we have science to explain these forces Religion is no longer necessary.
